Earlier this year, Martyn, Age UK Exeter’s CEO, was excited to be involved in the filming of a new series for the BBC called Holding Back the Years with the iconic Angela Rippon.
Aired in late March, the programme is one of a series and looks specifically at the financial challenges facing older people today. He was asked to comment on the state of older people’s pensions, their finances, why some don’t claim the benefits they’re entitled to, and the outlook for the future of work for older people.
You can watch the programme on the BBC iPlayer - it's Series 1, episode 2. Click here to watch now.
